Daily Aesthetic Fix

I'm a sucker for jewel tones and cockateels ;)


A little piece of NYC real estate heaven

Okay, I am in love with this NYC apartment! Isn't it just darling? It is featured in Lonny Mag's February Issue. It is just my style - perfectly eclectic :) Everything is creatively coordinated to give a welcoming feel. The colours, textures and patterns are just right and the composition of the whole apartment is very pleasing to the eye. The little kitchen is adorable and I LOVE what they've done with the bathroom, not to mention the livingroom/dining room...
See for yourself...

Note to self: find mini spiral stairs to lead me up to the top of my book mountain :)

The lucite chairs are really pretty in this space. They also help to give the illusion of more room at the same time as complimenting the victorian-esque sofa with a touch of modernity. And the zebra ottomons are great of course. Most things zebra patterned are a great touch as far as I'm concerned... except for maybe zebra print lycra mini dresses circa 1980's ;)

The paper on these walls is stunning! And it looks even better with the vase of matching flowers :) This isn't something that would necessarily catch my eye on the roll but it's really beautiful on the walls. I love bold, daring colours and patterns in small rooms!

What do you think of this space?

What is your favourite feature of this apartment?

This is my current screen saver... such a beautiful picture. Elephants are my favourite wild animal.

Unfortunately I have lost track of where this photograph is from. If you know please drop me an email and I will give it a proper citation.


Unique Tables for the Creative Soul


Hello friends!

My apologies for not having posted here in a while. I had the unfortunate experience of getting a virus on my computer... and I lost all the images I had saved for future posts :(

Well I'm back now but have had to start all over! What a shame...

I'm on the market for a new coffee table so I've been paying special attention to tables in decor photos. I want something unique and unlike the standard ol' 4-legged wooden table that we have now.

I like the idea of using a couple of side tables/stools instead of one large coffee table.

This table is darling... it would fit right in in my imaginary girly girl house :)

This one takes the idea of an ottoman as a table up a few notches! Love it!

These are my favourite and would go perfect in our eclectic livingroom we currently have. They look like old drums possibly?

Everyone knows I just love books... so having a book end-table (book-end table!) would be a dream! The translucent coffee table is also a great idea when wanting to open up a small space. Do you think I could find some large see-through books that would work and hit 2 birds with one stone? LOL

All I can say about this is - gorgeous and creative! Wouldn't you love a bathroom like this?

I like the rusticness of this table. It looks like it could have been repurposed out of something else.

Something like this would also be great for a smaller space as it can create more seating when needed.

Friends also know I love anything Moroccan - great look!

If you happen to find any great unique coffee table ideas please send them my way!
What kind of coffee table do you have at home?
